…we too, as do our guests today, arrived from Florence to Scarperia since the ’90s for a holiday and relax, suitable for all occasions from a picnic to culture, Scarperia having been, as well as all of Mugello, the summer residence of the Medici family in 1400 and this can still be seen today with the Medicean castles and residences in Scarperia and in all the Mugello area which can be visited by tourists.
We opened the B&B “il Fienile di Scarperia” in 2005 offering to all the guests a garden with swimming pool and now with our 15 years of experience we are opening MY HOME in the historical centre of Scarperia after a careful, supervised and profound restructuring, with a after a carefully detailed furnishing of this characteristic dwelling situated within the walls and next to the last Torrino Fortress of Scarperia .
We chose the name FLORENCE MY HOME to remember that Scarperia has always been near and allied to Florence. The kilometric distance, the alliance, the mentality and the Florentine influence can still be seen today, the same coat of arms (a Red Lilly in a white field), the Flag carriers of the historical procession, and since 1306 when it was still called
“Castel San Barnaba “, Scarperia defended Florence and after, in about 1500, the same Medici family consolidates the alliance.
We too, want with this house MY HOME, and it’s 4 bedrooms with bathrooms with the colours of some gemstones such as AMBER, TURQUOISE, RUBY and EMERALD to offer yet again the occasion to stay in this beautiful territory and in this town Scarperia situated among the most beautiful hamlets of Italy, just as the
Medici family from Florence chose Scarperia as a summer residence, a place of summer and festivities.
